Here it is, the Christmas Sampler finally has its borders! The border fabric is a bit on the dark side, but the colors are right on with the colors in the quilt, and it seems to have lost its Hawaiian flavor.It turned out really large at 90" wide by 100" long. It reaches floor to ceiling!
Back in December of 2010 I was passing time putting 1 1/2" squares into mini nine patches. The fabrics came from my mother-in-law; I have been looking for an idea of how to use them.
I finally saw a block I really liked; it was made up of two fabrics, but I figured it could be done as a scrappy too! So I put one together...
...and I liked it! I liked it alot! So I made four more!
Eventually it will be a queen sized quilt, but it will take a long time! Each block has 46 pieces and is only 9" square. Using such small pieces means taking time to be accurate.
Here is one last little project I have been working on. The fabrics are leftovers from another project..many many triangles left over! I thought this would make a cute wall hanging.
But I am struggling with that house square. It just does not want to fit right. It may look nice in the above picture, but in reality it has a bubble. See?
I've ripped it out so many times already. At some point it HAS to work, right?!!!
